In today’s day and age, up to 85% of corporations offer some form of health promotion program to their employees. Studies have shown that health promotion programs provided within the workplace can yield more productive employees with fewer health care needs. In fact, a 2010 Harvard Business Review article found that these wellness programs can yield a return up to six times their cost. In other words, when money is invested in health and wellness, it is returned in the form of fewer dollars spent in healthcare costs.
The American Journal of Health Promotion, 2003, sites when employers invest in onsite health promotion programs, they will see a 28% reduction in sick leave absenteeism, 26% reduction in health care benefit use, 30% reduction in worker’s compensation claims and disability management, and reduced presenteeism losses.
